Inglourious Basterds

Review: Inglourious Basterds

16 Jan 12

Spaghetti WW2

4 stars? Only because it's by the same director as PULP FICTION. That said - this is a wonderfully skewered take on the WW2 movie genre, seen through a Sergio Leone lens. If you've seen Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, then BASTERDS is a glorious homage. Don't expect a realistic historical document - it's a movie! Let down only by an overlong scene in which Mike (Austin Powers) Myers overacts (bad English accent!) - a scene that proves Tarantino could have easily cut 20 minutes and lost nothing of his originality, fun and verve.
